    Brenda sincerely cares for the success, growth and well being of her students. She is firm, fair, and offers corrections in a way that the student can understand. She never gives up until the student masters the issue that is being worked on. She is methodical, and knowledgeable with a great deal of experience. I highly recommend Brenda. I have known her for 11 years and she is a dedicated wonderful ballet teacher!! My daughter is a success today due to early training with Brenda.
